DO YOU AGREE?
The following advice is from page 47 of our prayer book:
"Pray as if everything depended upon God, act as if everything depended on you."
I think that this is consistent with the idea of NOMA, formulated by the biologist Stephen Gould. We exist in the material world; God exists in the spiritual world. The context in which the idea of NOMA (non-overlapping magisteria) was formulated is summarized in my article about futile conflicts between theists and atheists: Futile Confrontations Between Theists and Atheists.
Responses to Ludwik's thoughts are welcome, and we will be happy to post relevant comments on our Torah study and other matters here on our congregational blog.
